People living with an opioid use disorder in Canada should have access to comprehensive treatment options that meet all their needs. Best Practices across the Continuum of Care for the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder presents services that should be available to individuals experiencing or at risk of experiencing harms from opioid use.

This report, developed to inform Health Canada’s Federal, Provincial and Territorial Treatment Task Group, outlines the standard of service that should implemented to provide person-centred care to all people experiencing harms from opioids. The report includes a summary of actions taking place across Canada at multiple levels of government to help people experiencing harms from opioids and to stop the deaths occurring from opioid poisonings.
